ERJ in Press enables the scientific community to read the latest advances in respiratory science and medicine at the earliest possible time. ERJ in Press is updated every two to four weeks, publishing proof versions of peer-reviewed and accepted papers that will be subsequently published in the regular print and online version of European Respiratory Journal.
ERJ in Press articles are searchable in Medline and citable. Publication information, including the date and digital object identifier (DOI), appears on the PDF, the abstract and the search result citation listing, as shown in the example below:
Published online before print December 5, 2005 Eur Respir J 2005, doi:10.1183/09031936.05.00031905
Once a paper is published under ERJ in Press (and before it is published in its final form), it should be cited in other articles as follows:
C. Janson, et al. Changes in the use anti-asthmatic medication in an international cohort. Eur Respir J Published ahead of print December 5, 2005; DOI: 10.1183/09031936.05.00031905
An ERJ in Press article will subsequently be published in its final form in a regular print and online issue of ERJ, usually about three to six months later. At this time, the ERJ in Press version is no longer featured on the journal website, but it remains accessible through links in the final version of the online article (it is stored in an accessible, permanent archive).
To establish the connection between the ERJ in Press manuscript and its final version in the regular print and online issue of ERJ you will find a link to earlier versions of this article in the right hand navigation bar.
The final version of the paper will have the same DOI (digital object identifier) as the ERJ in Press version; thus, both versions will be searchable using the same DOI. A DOI is a globally unique and persistent label for an instance of intellectual property. The Digital Object Identifier System is supported by the International DOI Foundation, with information available at http://www.doi.org.
ERJ in Press articles may be subject to minor changes before publication in their final form in the journal.
